Amazon Launches An Anime Streaming Service
Amazon has just opened a flood gate to the anime lovers world by launching its new streaming service called Anime Strike that will let you stream new shows and movies for $5 a month.
The new service will bring forward thousands of classic and new anime to the table. Netflix did the same by airing anime like Knights of Sidonia to spice up its show lists.

The sad news is, the service will only be available for Prime in the US for now leaving the rest of us out of the picture which includes Asia & Africa too.
Anime Strike is now part of the company’s list of add-on Channels one can subscribe to for a monthly fee. Amazon’s other channels on the platform include Showtime, Starz, Tribeca Shortlist, Seeso and HBO.
What do we expect from the new channel?
The channel will bring thousands of new content from classic to new anime. It will include classics like Paprika, Tokyo Godfathers and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS.
Recent shows like The Great Passage, Kill La Kill and Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga (“Ao No Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen”). Amazon told Variety that it’ll refresh its content on a weekly basis.
Reports state that Amazon plans to launch more such similar services in the future though it didn’t specify which genres it had in mind just yet.
